COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Double Vision Doppelbock is brewed with Idaho 2 row pale and German Munich, Caraaroma, Caramunich, and de-husked Carafa malts to an original gravity of 24 Plato. The malts provide a dark leather color with ruby notes, a luxurious tan head, and a bready aroma with a hint of smoke and fermented with lager yeast from a monastery brewery near Munich.

On tap at Hops and Pie poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of bourbon, caramel, oak and light fruitiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, toffee, brown sugar, bourbon and light oak with a smooth dry lingering brown sugar finish.

On tap at Hops & Pie. Brown appearance with a tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, toasted oak, mild caramel/toffee and light chocolate. Similar flavor, rich, smooth and malty with bourbon barrel complexities. Medium to full body with soft carbonation. Wow, pretty nice overall.

JStax (6139) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2017
12 ounce bottle. The beer is a dark brown with a beige head of foam. Good head retention. The aroma has fig, musty wine, vanilla and chocolate. Sweet and moderately boozy taste. Big body and medium carbonation.

slowrunner77 (11678) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 12, 2017
Dark brown pour. More barrel than doppelbock, though the base doesnt quite hit the style either. Sweet, boozy, light breadlines under the barrel. Pretty good.

tmoreau (4232) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2017
Shared 2015-750 ml. bottle poured to snifters showing a fairly clear, mahogany color, with a bubbly layer of tan foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose was toasted, slightly roasted, with a touch of cocoa, caramel, some spice, ripened dark fruit, barrel/oak, subtle vanilla, and lurking bourbon presence. The taste was similar, medium+ bodied, with fair carbonation that gradually softened, warmth, moderate, earthy & tannic bitterness, and finishing dryness. BB advanced the base notes, but the cellaring took a little of the edge off, imo.

BuckeyeBoy (7388) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 3, 2017
On tap pours out dark brown almost black topped with a tan head. Nose is great bourbon barrel vanilla chocolate and pit fruit. Taste is more of the bourbon barrel vanilla roast some pit fruit and nice one.

On Tap at PreFunk Boise. Great caramel malty aromas. Some bourbon flavors but mostly the smooth boozy caramel brown malts. Very smooth and tasty.

Bill Becker (975) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 11, 2016
From a Howler at Liquor Shed. $ 13. 99 Pours a dark brown with a smallish tan head of foam. Very little lacing. Malty almost roasty malt aromas mixed in with the Bourbon Barrel aging. I dig how much of the base beer shines through in the smell. The taste? I reckon aboot 50-50 ratio between the malt and Bourbon and that pleases me so much. Bourbon Barrel Aged Doppelbock? I doubt that it could have been done any better. High end of medium bodied, not too much carbonation to get in the way. Splendid job, Grand Teton!
